    Yesterday Allie had a run in with a porcupine. She did not win. Fortunately, she did not get too many quills. Probably only a dozen or so, though she had a couple in her mouth. Had to make a quick run to the vet. Barely got home in time to go to work. Allie was not a happy camper. Do you think she learned anything? Probably not. She certainly hasn't learned to leave skunks alone! lol

    Females seem to be more effective guard dogs. Trudy cornered possums on two different occasions for me to come out and "tend to". Then she acted like she was the Big B and strutted around. Waldo completely ignores anything but cats and I think he just wants to play with them. I tell him to beware of their Kitty Fu.

    How is she doing now that you're home from work? I know them quills can kill a dog if they get left in or break off.
    I'm glad to hear you were able to get her to the vet straight away.

    Allie is doing fine. We were lucky the vet was able to remove them right away. Quills can cause all sorts of problems if you don't get them all out. :(

    I really doubt that she learnt anything.
